Near Big Bend , well not real near but within 100 miles is Marfa, Tx. Outside of Marfa on 90 is a veiwing area for the Marfa Lights. It's one of 2 places in the world to see these strange lights. The explanations for them range from ghosts of miners wandering the hills to aliens. the scientific version is also strange. Light from distant stars bent and focused by the upper atmosphere is concentrated into balls of light that float in the hills ?
And north of the panhandle in southern New Mexico check out Carlsbad Caverns and then stay for the sunset bat exodus. Good stuff.
